Drones have enabled a technological leap in many industries, especially for surveying difficult terrain. We explore drone technology for the mining industry, and tools for remote data connectivity.
Broadband is widely described as the great game changer for mission critical communications, today we look at a free lesson on Tait Radio Academy to answer the question; what is broadband communications? Continue Reading
The world has embraced LTE and broadband communications in the consumer space, but mission critical industries continue to depend on the reliability of radio comms. While broadband offers greater data capability, there is still hesitation to fully commit to it for critical comms. Let’s take a look at some organizations that are integrating broadband into their communications toolkit.
When disaster strikes, you will find first responders willing and ready to serve. Firefighters, utility workers, police officers, rescue crews, EMS and many others put their lives on the line to protect and provide for their own communities. In this article we cover the need for resilient people and mission critical communications systems in times of disaster.
With advances in cellular technology, LTE is proving to be a real game changer in the critical communications space, making it increasingly important to consider a unified communications strategy. Mission critical users who want to take advantage of mobile broadband have several choices – in this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we’ll explore the top three.
Does your organization require broadband connectivity for operations? Do commercial cellular carriers pose a coverage or capacity problem? With Tait Private LTE solutions, you can have total control over an exclusive wireless broadband network, with guaranteed coverage of your operational area, even if it’s beyond the reach of public networks.
As 5G gains coverage in cities around the world, there are many questions about the fifth generation standard for cellular networks. In this lesson from the Tait Radio Academy, we take a technical look at what to expect from this exciting new standard.
EA Networks is a Utility company in New Zealand that owns and operates the region’s electricity distribution, and an advanced fiber-optic communications network. The area EA Networks services is vast, often reaching beyond the range of their LMR network, so to keep in contact with workers at all times, EA Networks needed a communications solution that would allow roaming to cellular networks.
Chief Technical Architect Geoff Peck compares the performance of cellular and LMR for mission critical communications, and concludes it’s not as simple as it seems.
There is ongoing debate on the topic of cellular versus LMR. Indeed, nothing seems better designed to polarize opinion. This article looks at the issue from where it matters: the end user.
The first thing you notice about the debate is the misinformation – it’s not easy to nail things down simply.
So let’s start with some important points of comparison.
